Total Rip-off Tuesday

Wherein I "rip-off" another writer. Not taking credit, just sharing good stuff.

I am reading Fr. James Martin, SJ's book The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything, and thought this was good:

Christian theology holds that God became human, or "incarnate", in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. (The word incarnation comes from the Latin root carn, for "flesh".) More broadly, as incarnational spirituality means believing that God can be found in the everyday events of our lives. God is not just out there. God is right here, too. If you're looking for God, look around. To this end, one of the best definitions of prayer is from Walter Burghardt, a twentieth-century Jesuit theologian, who called it a "long, loving look at the real." Incarnational theology is about the real.
